Each 2002 Series A Term Bond so delivered or previously purchased or redeemed shall be credited at 100% of the principal amount thereof on the obligation of the City to redeem 2002 Series A Term Bonds of the same Stated Maturity on such mandatory Redemption Date, and any excess of such amount shall be credited on future mandatory redemption obligations for 2002 Series A Term Bonds of the same Stated Maturity in chronological order, and the principal amount of 2002 Series A Term Bonds of the same Stated Maturity to be redeemed by operation of the requirements of this Section shall be accordingly reduced. If the City intends to exercise any option granted by the provisions of clauses (1), (2) or (3) above, the City will, on or before the 45th day next preceding each mandatory Redemption Date, furnish the Paying Agent a written certificate indicating to what extent the provisions of said clauses (1), (2) and (3) are to be complied with respect to such mandatory redemption payment.

Section 402.    Selection of Bonds to Be Redeemed.

(a)    The Paying Agent shall call 2002 Series A Bonds for redemption and payment as herein provided upon receipt by the Paying Agent at least 45 days prior to the Redemption Date of a written request of the City specifying the principal amount, Stated Maturities and Redemption Prices of the 2002 Series A Bonds to be called for redemption. The Paying Agent may in its discretion waive such notice period so long as the notice requirements set forth in Section 403 are met. The foregoing provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to the mandatory redemption of 2002 Series A Bonds hereunder, and 2002 Series A Bonds shall be called by the Paying Agent for redemption pursuant to such mandatory redemption requirements without the necessity of any action by the City and whether or not the Paying Agent shall hold in the 2002 Series A Bond Subaccount within the Bond Account moneys available and sufficient to effect the required redemption.

(b)    2002 Series A Bonds shall be redeemed only in the principal amount of $5,000 or any integral multiple thereof. When less than all of the Outstanding Bonds are to be redeemed prior to Stated Maturity, such 2002 Series A Bonds shall be redeemed in inverse order of their Stated Maturities, and 2002 Series A Bonds of less than a full Stated Maturity shall be selected by the Paying Agent in $5,000 units of principal amount in such equitable manner as the Paying Agent may determine.

(c)    In the case of a partial redemption of 2002 Series A Bonds at the time Outstanding in denominations greater than $5,000, each $5,000 of face value shall be treated as though it were a separate 2002 Series A Bond of the denomination of $5,000. If it is determined that one or more, but not all, of the $5,000 units of face value represented by any 2002 Series A Bond are selected for redemption, then upon notice of intention to redeem such $5,000 unit or units, the Registered Owner of such 2002 Series A Bond or the Registered Owner’s duly authorized agent shall present and surrender such 2002 Series A Bond to the Paying Agent (1) for payment of the Redemption Price and interest to the Redemption Date of such $5,000 unit or units of face value called for redemption, and (2) for exchange, without charge to the Registered Owner thereof, for a new 2002 Series A Bond or Bonds of the aggregate principal amount of the unredeemed portion of the principal amount of such 2002 Series A Bond. If the Registered Owner of any such 2002 Series A Bond shall fail to present such 2002 Series A Bond to the Paying Agent for payment and exchange as aforesaid, such 2002 Series A Bond shall, nevertheless, become due and payable on the Redemption Date to the extent of the $5,000 unit or units of face value called for redemption (and to that extent only).

Section 403.    Notice and Effect of Call for Redemption.
Unless waived by any Registered Owner of 2002 Series A Bonds to be redeemed, official notice of any redemption shall be given by the Paying Agent on behalf of the City by mailing a copy of an official redemption notice by first class, registered or certified mail, as determined by the Paying Agent, at least 30 days but not more than 60 days prior to the Redemption Date, to each Registered Owner of the 2002 Series A Bonds to be redeemed at the address shown on the Bond Register or at such other address furnished in writing by any such Registered Owner or Owners to the Paying Agent.

All official notices of redemption shall be dated and shall contain the following information:

(a)    the Redemption Date;

(b)    the Redemption Price;

(c)    if less than all Outstanding Bonds are to be redeemed, the identification (and, in the case of partial redemption of any 2002 Series A Bonds, the respective principal amounts) of the 2002 Series A Bonds to be redeemed;

(d)    a statement that on the Redemption Date the Redemption Price will become due and payable upon each such 2002 Series A Bond or portion thereof called for redemption and that interest thereon shall cease to accrue from and after the Redemption Date; and

(e)    the place where such 2002 Series A Bonds are to be surrendered for payment of the Redemption Price, which shall be the principal corporate trust office of the Paying Agent.

Prior to any Redemption Date, the City shall deposit with the Paying Agent an amount of money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of all the 2002 Series A Bonds or portions of 2002 Series A Bonds that are to be redeemed on that date.

Official notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the 2002 Series A Bonds or portions of 2002 Series A Bonds to be redeemed shall become due and payable on the Redemption Date, at the Redemption Price therein specified, and from and after the Redemption Date (unless the City shall default in the payment of the Redemption Price) such 2002 Series A Bonds or portion of 2002 Series A Bonds shall cease to bear interest. Upon surrender of such 2002 Series A Bonds for redemption in accordance with such notice, the Redemption Price of such 2002 Series A Bonds shall be paid by the Paying Agent. Installments of interest due on or prior to the Redemption Date shall be payable as herein provided for payment of interest. Upon surrender for any partial redemption of any 2002 Series A Bond, there shall be prepared for the Registered Owner a new 2002 Series A Bond or Bonds of the same Stated Maturity in the amount of the unpaid principal as provided herein. All 2002 Series A Bonds that have been redeemed shall be canceled and destroyed by the Paying Agent as provided herein and shall not be reissued.

In addition to the foregoing notice, the Paying Agent is directed to give such additional notice and take such additional actions as are necessary to comply with any mandatory or voluntary standards then in effect for processing redemptions of municipal securities established by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Failure to comply with such standards shall not affect or invalidate the redemption of any 2002 Series A Bond.

As provided in the Ordinance, bonds of the City may be issued from time to time pursuant to supplemental ordinances in one or more series, in various principal amounts, may mature at different times, may bear interest at different rates and may otherwise vary. All bonds to be issued under the Ordinance are and will be equally secured by the pledge, security interest and covenants made therein, except as otherwise expressly provided or permitted in the Ordinance.

The Bonds are issued on a parity under the Ordinance with the City’s Water and Electric System Revenue Bonds, 1985 Series B (the “Series 1985B Bonds”), the City’s Water and Electric System Refunding and Improvement Revenue Bonds, 1992 Series A (the “Series 1992A Bonds”), and the City’s Water and Electric System Refunding and Improvement Bonds, 1998 Series A (the “Series 1998A Bonds”). The payment of the principal of and interest on the Series 1985B Bonds are, in addition, supported by a Letter of Credit and the obligations of the City thereunder to the issuer of the Letter of Credit are on a parity with the 2002 Series A Bonds, but the Series 1992A Bonds, the Series 1998A Bonds and the 2002 Series A Bonds are not payable from proceeds of a drawing under the Letter of Credit. The payment of the principal of and interest on the term bonds of the Series 1998A Bonds are, in addition, supported by a municipal bond insurance policy and the obligations of the City thereunder to the issuer of the municipal bond insurance policy are on a parity with the Series 1998A Bonds, but the Series 1992A Bonds, the Series 1985B Bonds and the 2002 Series A Bonds are not payable from proceeds of a drawing under such municipal bond insurance policy.  The payment of the principal and interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds are, in addition, supported by the financial guaranty insurance policy issued by Ambac Assurance Corporation insuring the payment when due of the principal of and interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds.  As provided in the Ordinance, bonds and other obligations of the City may be issued from time to time pursuant to supplemental ordinances in one or more series, in various principal amounts, may mature at different times, may bear interest at different rates and may otherwise vary. All obligations to be issued under the Ordinance are and will be equally secured by the pledge, security interest and covenants made therein, except as otherwise expressly provided or permitted in the Ordinance.

This Bond is a special obligation of the City payable solely from the sources described above and does not constitute a general obligation or an indebtedness of the City within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation or provision, and the City does not pledge its full faith and credit and is not obligated to levy taxes or resort to any other moneys of the City, except net revenues of the System as provided in the Ordinance, to pay the principal, premium, if any, and interest on the Bonds.

The City, the Paying Agent, the Authenticating Agent and the Bond Registrar may deem and treat the person in whose name this Bond is registered as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment of, or on account of, the principal or redemption price hereof and interest due hereon and for all other purposes.

The Bonds are issuable in the form of registered bonds in the denominations of $5,000 or any integral multiple of $5,000. In the manner, subject to the conditions and upon the payment of the charges described in the Ordinance, the owner of any Bond or Bonds may surrender the same (together with a written instrument of transfer satisfactory to the Bond Registrar), in exchange for an equal aggregate principal amount of Bonds of any other authorized denominations.

At the option of the City, the Bonds or portions thereof maturing on October 1, 2013 and thereafter may be called for redemption and payment prior to their stated maturity on October 1, 2012 and thereafter at the direction of the City prior to maturity, upon notice as hereinafter provided, as a whole at any time or in part on any interest payment date in any order of maturity selected by the City and by lot in multiples of $5,000 within a maturity, at the redemption price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued interest thereon to the date of redemption.

The Bonds maturing on October 1, 2026 (the “Term Bond”), are subject to mandatory redemption and payment prior to maturity on October 1, 2024 and on October 1, 2025 at the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest to the redemption date, without premium.

    2025    1,070,000

The remaining $1,125,000 principal amount of the Term Bond maturing on October 1, 2026 will be paid at maturity.

If less than all of the Bonds of like maturity are to be redeemed, the particular Bonds to be redeemed shall be selected at random by the Paying Agent as provided in the Ordinance.

Notice of redemption shall be given to the registered owner hereof in the manner and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Ordinance. If notice of redemption shall have been given as aforesaid, the Bonds or portions thereof specified in said notice shall become due and payable on the redemption date therein fixed, and if, on the redemption date, moneys for the redemption of all the Bonds or portions thereof to be redeemed, together with interest to the redemption date, shall be available for such payment on said date, then, from and after the redemption date interest on such Bonds or portions thereof so called for redemption shall cease to accrue and be payable.

Anything in the Original Ordinance to the contrary notwithstanding, upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default (as defined in the Original Ordinance) with respect to the 2002 Series A Bonds, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall be entitled to control and direct the enforcement of all rights and remedies granted to the 2002 Series A Bondholders or the Paying Agent for the benefit of the 2002 Series A Bondholders under this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance, including, without limitation, acceleration of the principal of the 2002 Series A Bonds and the right to annul any declaration of acceleration, and the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall also be entitled to approve all waivers of Events of Default with respect to the 2002 Series A Bonds.


Section 802.    Payment Procedure Pursuant to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy.


>As long as the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy shall be in full force and effect for the 2002 Series A Bonds, the City and the Paying Agent agree to comply with the following provisions:

At least one (1) day prior to all Interest Payment Dates the Paying Agent will determine whether there will be sufficient funds in the funds and accounts to pay the principal of or interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds on such Interest Payment Date. If the Paying Agent determines that there will be insufficient funds in such funds or accounts, the Paying Agent shall so notify the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer. Such notice shall specify the amount of the anticipated deficiency, the 2002 Series A Bonds to which such deficiency is applicable and whether such 2002 Series A Bonds will be deficient as to principal or interest, or both. If the Paying Agent has not so notified the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer at least one (1) day prior to an Interest Payment Date, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer will make payments of principal or interest due on the 2002 Series A Bonds on or before the first (1st) day next following the date on which the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall have received notice of nonpayment from the Paying Agent.


the Paying Agent shall, after giving notice to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer as provided in (a) above, make available to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer and, at the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer’s direction, to The Bank of New York, in New York, New York, as insurance trustee for the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer or any successor insurance trustee (the “Insurance Trustee”), the registration books of the City maintained by the Paying Agent and all records relating to the funds and accounts maintained under this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance.


the Paying Agent shall provide the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer and the Insurance Trustee with a list of registered owners of 2002 Series A Bonds entitled to receive principal or interest payments from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer under the terms of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy, and shall make arrangements with the Insurance Trustee (i) to mail checks or drafts to the registered owners of 2002 Series A Bonds entitled to receive full or partial interest payments from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer and (ii) to pay principal upon 2002 Series A Bonds surrendered to the Insurance Trustee by the registered owners of 2002 Series A Bonds entitled to receive full or partial principal payments from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer.


the Paying Agent shall, at the time it provides notice to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer pursuant to (a) above, notify registered owners of 2002 Series A Bonds entitled to receive the payment of principal or interest thereon from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer (i) as to the fact of such entitlement, (ii) that the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer will remit to them all or a part of the interest payments next coming due upon proof of Holder entitlement to interest payments and delivery to the Insurance Trustee, in form satisfactory to the Insurance Trustee, of an appropriate assignment of the registered owner’s right to payment, (iii) that should they be entitled to receive full payment of principal from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer, they must surrender their 2002 Series A Bonds (along with an appropriate instrument of assignment in form satisfactory to the Insurance Trustee to permit ownership of such 2002 Series A Bonds to be registered in the name of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer) for payment to the Insurance Trustee, and not the Paying Agent and (iv) that should they be entitled to receive partial payment of principal from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer, they must surrender their 2002 Series A Bonds for payment thereon first to the Paying Agent who shall note on such 2002 Series A Bonds the portion of the principal paid by the Paying Agent and then, along with an appropriate instrument of assignment in form satisfactory to the Insurance Trustee, to the Insurance Trustee, which will then pay the unpaid portion of principal.


in the event that the Paying Agent has notice that any payment of principal of or interest on a Bond which has become Due for Payment and which is made to a Holder by or on behalf of the City has been deemed a preferential transfer and theretofore recovered from its registered owner pursuant to the United States Bankruptcy Code by a trustee in bankruptcy in accordance with the final, nonappealable order of a court having competent jurisdiction, the Paying Agent shall, at the time the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer is notified pursuant to (a) above, notify all registered owners that in the event that any registered owner’s payment is so recovered, such registered owner will be entitled to payment from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer to the extent of such recovery if sufficient funds are not otherwise available, and the Paying Agent shall furnish to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer its records evidencing the payments of principal of and interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds which have been made by the Paying Agent and subsequently recovered from registered owners  and the dates on which such payments were made.


in addition to those rights granted the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer under this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall, to the extent it makes payment of principal of or interest on 2002 Series A Bonds, become subrogated to the rights of the recipients of such payments in accordance with the terms of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy, and to evidence such subrogation (i) in the case of subrogation as to claims for past due interest, the Paying Agent shall note the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer’s rights as subrogee on the registration books of the City maintained by the Paying Agent upon receipt from the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer of proof of the payment of interest thereon to the registered owners of the 2002 Series A Bonds, and (ii) in the case of subrogation as to claims for past due principal, the Paying Agent shall note the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer’s rights as subrogee on the registration books of the City maintained by the Paying Agent upon surrender of the 2002 Series A Bonds by the registered owners thereof together with proof of the payment of principal thereof.


Section 803.    Effect of 2002 Series A Bond Insurer Payment.


Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Original Ordinance, in the event that the principal and or interest due on the 2002 Series A Bonds shall be paid by the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer pursuant to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy, the 2002 Series A Bonds shall remain Outstanding for all purposes, not be defeased or otherwise satisfied and not be considered paid by the City, and the assignment and pledge  and all covenants, agreements and other obligations of the City to the registered owners shall continue to exist and shall run to the benefit of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer, and the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall be subrogated to the rights of such registered owners.




Section 804.    Consent of 2002 Series A Bond Insurer.



    (a)     Any provision of this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance expressly recognizing or granting rights in or to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer may not be amended in any manner which affects the rights of the 2002 Series A Bond hereunder without the prior written consent of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer.


    (b)    Unless otherwise provided in this Section, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer’s consent shall be required in addition to 2002 Series A Bondholder consent, when required, for the following purposes:  (i) execution and delivery of any Supplemental Ordinance affecting the 2002 Series A Bonds (but solely to the extent set forth in Article XI of the Original Ordinance); (ii) removal of the Paying Agent for the 2002 Series A Bonds and selection and appointment of any successor paying agent; and (iii) initiation or approval of any action not described in (i) or (ii) above which requires 2002 Series A Bondholder consent.


    (c)    The 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall be entitled to its rights hereunder, including its rights of consent, so long as the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer is not in default in its payment obligations under the 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy.


    (d)    Any reorganization or liquidation plan with respect to the City must be acceptable to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer.  In the event of any reorganization or liquidation, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall have the right to vote on behalf of all 2002 Series A Bondholders who hold 2002 Series A Bond Insurer-insured 2002 Series A Bonds absent a default by the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer under the applicable 2002 Series A Bond Insurance Policy insuring such 2002 Series A Bonds.


Section 805.    Resignation or Removal of Paying Agent, Authenticating Agent or Bond Registrar and Appointment of         Successor.


Notwithstanding Section 912 of the Original Ordinance, the Paying Agent for the 2002 Series A Bonds may be removed at any time by an instrument or concurrent instruments in writing delivered to the Paying Agent for the 2002 Series A Bonds, the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer and the City and signed by the Owners of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of 2002 Series A Bonds then Outstanding with the consent of the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer or if, a breach of trusts set forth in the Original Ordinance has occurred, an instrument in writing delivered to the City and the 2002 Series A Bondholders by the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer; provided, however, that in no event shall the removal of the Paying Agent become effective until such time as a successor Paying Agent has been appointed and has accepted the appointment. Every such Paying Agent for the 2002 Series A Bonds appointed shall be a trust company or bank in good standing located in or incorporated under the laws of the State of Missouri, duly authorized to exercise trust powers and subject to examination by federal or state authority, having a reported capital and surplus of not less than $75,000,000, or such lesser amount as may be approved in writing by the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer.  The 2002 Series A Bond Insurer shall be provided with written notice of the resignation or removal of the Paying Agent and the appointment of any successor thereto.


Section 806.    Additional Financial and Reporting Requirements.


Notwithstanding the provisions of Article IX of the Original Ordinance, (a)  The Paying Agent shall furnish to the 2002 Series A Bond Insurer a copy of any notice to be given to the registered owners of the 2002 Series A Bonds, including, without limitation, notification of any redemption of or the defeasance of the 2002 Series A Bonds, and any certificate rendered pursuant to this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance relating to the security for the 2002 Series A Bonds.

ARTICLE IX


MISCELLANEOUS



Section 901.    Tax Covenants.

    (a)    The City covenants that it will not take any action or permit any action to be taken or omit to take any action or permit the omission of any action reasonably within its control which action or omission will cause the interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds to be included in gross income for federal income taxation purposes or otherwise adversely affect the exemption of the interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds from federal and State of Missouri taxation.  This covenant shall survive the payment of the 2002 Series A Bonds and the termination of this Fourth Supplemental Ordinance.



    (b)    The City covenants and agrees that (i) it will comply with all requirements of Section 148 of the Code to the extent applicable to the 2002 Series A Bonds, (ii) it will use the proceeds of the 2002 Series A Bonds as soon as practicable and with all reasonable dispatch for the purposes for which the 2002 Series A Bonds are issued, and (iii) it will not invest or directly or indirectly use or permit the use of any proceeds of the 2002 Series A Bonds or any other funds of the City in any manner, or take or omit to take any action, that would cause the 2002 Series A Bonds to be “arbitrage bonds” within the meaning of Section 103(b)(2) or Section 148(a) of the Code.



    (c)    The City covenants and agrees that it will pay or provide for the payment from time to time of all amounts required to be rebated to the United States pursuant to Section 148(f) of the Code and any Treasury Regulations applicable to the 2002 Series A Bonds from time to time. This covenant shall survive payment in full or defeasance of the 2002 Series A Bonds. The City specifically covenants to pay or cause to be paid to the United States, the required amounts of rebatable arbitrage at the times and in the amounts as determined by the Tax Letter of Instructions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Tax Letter of Instructions may be amended or replaced if, in the opinion of counsel nationally recognized on the subject of municipal bonds, such amendment or replacement will not adversely affect the exclusion from gross income for federal income tax purposes of interest on the 2002 Series A Bonds.
